Royalton Antigua Resort & Spa

Antigua, Caribbean

The hotel

A private beach that plays up to all those Caribbean stereotypes (think cashmere sands, dazzling waters, and gentle trade winds) plays host to one of Antigua’s latest luxury retreats. Watched over by Fort Barrington, Royalton Antigua lives up to its name – letting you live like royalty with almost every treat included in their All-In Luxury® promise. You can sip handcrafted cocktails, surf the WiFi, snorkel and kayak in the bay, and even try out scuba-diving with an introductory lesson – all without dipping into your holiday spending money. And you can dine without picking up the tab too, with more than a dozen restaurants and bars covering everything from beachside burgers to sumptuous steakhouse classics. Adding their own special twist, they also feature extra touches like their Sports Event Guarantee™ (so you can watch big sports events on TV) and weekly pool and beach parties.

The kind people of Antigua shinned brightly as the sun at the Royalton Resort & Spa. We were welcomed by FaithLyn who puts the hospitable in hospitality was efficient and helpful in every way. Cecelia made breakfast a wonderful memorable event for us each day. The passion fruit juice she prepared was intoxicating. The teams of chefs and servers went above and beyond to make each meal a culinary experience. Ashley at the bar prepared colorful drinks that looked like works of art. The beyond beautiful beach was impeccably maintained by Fraye who is always one step ahead of you and extremely gracious. The yoga classes were taugth by Kaffane who is one of the best instructors I have ever had. The team at Royalton Antigua were one of the most cohesive teams I have ever experienced at any resort I have ever visited. The details throughout the resort and modern rooms made our stay even more pleasant. This is place that you should not miss going to. It is paradise. Read less

They livened up the place at night. I am putting it out there for more people to check out and enjoy the amazing staff at this resort. It was first class service from the time of check-in to the time of checking out. We arrived at our room to a Happy Birthday Banner with balloons and champagne. It was very sweet and my mom was very surprised. The waitress staff were all friendly and remembered what you like and had it at the table before you could even ask. All I have to say is GO ROYALTON ANTIGUA!! :-) Read less

Our massage therapists, Arial and Namiah were so sweet. The Vibe Team, Scott, Conneka, and Rukila were awesome in make sure we knew what the daily activities were. They were all so nice! Our pool bartender, Nigel, did a superb job at keeping our drinks full. Shawn and Devon also did a great job at coming around often to make see if we needed anything while we were at the beach.
